The return of the famous wrestler dominated social media circles Saturday evening.
Coachman revealed his final check from the XFL in 2020 bounced, and WWE refused to take the issue to Vince McMahon.
The addition of WWE programming complements the aggressive push The CW has made into live sports.
McMahon is moving from CEO to Executive Chairman, relinquishing creative control to Paul "Triple H" Levesque in the move.
Previously on Friday evenings, FOX aired the WWE program year-round, with Big Ten games played on Fridays airing on FS1 or Big Ten Network.
"Big Ten football and Big East basketball look to be the products that FOX will put on its airwaves in primetime on Fridays."
“Under the terms of the deal, NBCUniversal will produce four primetime WWE specials each year too. Those will run on NBC.”
"Throughout the promotion’s history, fans have had times when they openly questioned what it is Vince McMahon is trying to accomplish, but they keep coming back....
"Horowitz is one of the most influential producers in sports media, having helped create content for NBC and ESPN and helped launch FS1."
“Hopefully we have some news on that in a couple of months.”
